Wombat - Please Stop..

Using Twitter to complain about companies all the time, it's getting so old. I've been a fan of this site for years, and lately when I visit the front page there's usually a tweet by Wombat trying to get the attention of a company. I don't know if you're trying to get free shit, or just trying to get better customer service based off your number of followers (thanks only to this site) by spamming feedback to companies. GiantBomb actually brought up a story on their podcast about this type of activity recently, and they all said they try to avoid doing it.

Please stop this annoying shit.

The @verizonwireless website is total garbage and doesn't show me any of the information I need. Useless & shameful.

dear @tacobell for a hard taco, it is meat, cheese, lettuce not meat, lettuce, cheese. I don't want dry cheese & wilted lettuce.

I am trying my 2nd @TGIFridays frozen meal and I can now confirm, do not eat them. Eat anything else instead.

I just tried a @TGIFridays frozen meal for lunch. Still trying to figure out what kind of meat it was.

Really dude?
Actually some companies want this kind of feedback.
That way they can get immediate feedback about there products they would not usually hear about without the help of twitter.

I used to run the customer relations of a company and i got paid to read peoples tweets and write feedback reports to the company.

Nixts - Please stop...complaining about how people use their Twitter accounts. If you don't like it then don't follow him or read the tweets on the home page.

Seriously? You claim that he does it "all the time," and yet the best examples you can come up with are Tweets that are separated by DAYS (3-7-5-10)? Besides, last time I checked, one of the common functions of Twitter is to give a quick opinion on a thing or place in 140 characters or less. If he was flooding the feeds with the same complaints each day, then perhaps you would have a case, but since he is not doing that, I'd say that you're on your own.

Cheese under the lettuce of a taco? That's weird.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

Gotta love GiantBomb's weak nondorsement.

You never hear someone say:
"Yeah, pointing loaded guns at friends while drunk, we try to avoid doing that."
"Deaf children running across the street...we try to avoid them."
"Yousa wanna returna the food? Meesa try to avoid that."

Taco's are supposed to be exactly as Taco Bell makes them.

Best Mexican food ever!

Cilantro and lime? Why don't I just start making out with dudes while I'm at it?

I was going to post in here the other day, but I thought it'd get overlooked. I gotta chime in with everyone else and say it's really not a big deal. It's twitter, That's what people use that shit for. If it annoys you that much, don't read the tweets section or just avoid Wombat's tweets. Besides, two of the ones you listed weren't even complaints. Sheesh. :roll:

The articles I read seem to conjure up these images of Capcom executives sitting in a dark room with a cauldron and cackling about how no one will be able to buy this game used.


Do you really think I could start a fast food restaurant called McDonaldz and use the golden arches as my logo and get away with it?

That's the way I've always done it, I've actually had arguments about this before! :lol:

IMO, It's meat, followed by cheese(with the idea that the cheese melts and then stays in place). After that you add the lettuce, which the melted cheese helps hold in place. Then the sour cream/taco sauce/salsa gets thrown on top, which not only serves as the icing on the cake, but also helps to weigh down the aforementioned lettuce. Yeah.

It's associated with Twitter. # is used for trending topics, @ is used to get attention or refer to something.

At least, that's what I believe they mean. I'm not a big twitter user myself.
